Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents an album dedicated to the anniversaries of two great figures of Russian culture of the 20th century - Sergei Yesenin (1895 - 1925) and Georgy Sviridov (1915 - 1998). Georgy Sviridov's cantatas Poem to the Memory of Sergei Yesenin and Wooden Russia are performed by the Republican Academic Choir led by Alexander Yurlov and such luminaries of domestic conducting art as Yuri Temirkanov and Gennady Rozhdestvensky. The chamber cycle My Father Is a Peasant is sung by Alexei Maslennikov, an outstanding interpreter of Sviridov's music who is accompanied by the author.
